The official trailer for Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story has been released and we're more excited than ever to watch it. Fans were quick to react to the full-length trailer on social media and many were saying the same thing.

The racy period drama, which is a prequel to the popular Shonda Rhimes-created show, will be released on Netflix in May and stars India Amarteifio in the titular role as young Queen Charlotte. To get a glimpse of what's in store, check out the video below where you can watch the trailer in full.

Fans were quick to share their thoughts online and it seems plenty were in agreement that it looks incredible! One person wrote: "Bridgerton is one of those bingeable shows with many such doses. This lavish period drama inspires teas and duvets and speaking with outrageously posh syntaxes. I'm excited for this Spinoff."

A second added on Twitter: "This looks amazing! I can't wait!," as a third commented: "This trailer is fantastic! Cannot wait to watch #queencharlotte." A fourth, meanwhile, said: "Oooh it looks promising. I love a good forced proximity/arranged marriage trope."
